Tidewater Chavurah invites the community for Tikkun Leil Shavuot at the home of Rabbi Ellen Jaffe-Gill.

Rabbi Jaffe-Gill will present a two-part study session, focusing first on a comparative reading of the Kaddish prayer and excerpts from Allen Ginsberg’s 1959 poem Kaddish, followed by a survey of the Jewish songwriters who dominated rock ’n’ roll during the 1950s and early 1960s, including Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann and Neil Sedaka. Dairy refreshments will be served.

Jaffe-Gill’s address is 4661 Priscilla Lane in Virginia Beach.
